Our Curriculum of Connections (Minus Plato)
“Our Curriculum of Connections” is an online contribution by Minus Plato to “Theorizing Africana Receptions,” the first Eos workshop at the Society for Classical Studies Annual Meeting in 2019. You can find the first installment in the series here.
Minus Plato started life as a blog about the dynamic between ancient Greek and Roman culture and Modern/Contemporary Art in May 2012, written by Richard Fletcher, Associate Professor in the Department of Classics at Ohio State University. During the first year and a half of the Trump presidency and following a transformative experience at documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel, Minus Plato developed into a platform for engaging with contemporary artists as a means of critiquing the discipline of Classics. As a result, Richard Fletcher writes as Minus Plato from his new position as Associate Professor in the Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy at Ohio State University.
